GALLERY: Red moon rises over Bendigo

MORE than 60 people turned out to watch the moon turn red in Golden Square on Tuesday night. 

The phenomena, known as a total lunar eclipse, happens when the moon passes through the shadow of the earth. 

Melbourne's Alan and Sue Melbourne were in Bendigo for the night and decided to view the eclipse from Tucker Street Reserve.  

Mr Melbourne said he had never seen a total lunar eclipse. 

"It is fascinating," he said.

"Really amazing."  

Send your eclipse photos to and the Bendigo Advertiser will publish them in an online gallery.
